Greivous' Cough?
« on: May 8, 2005, 05:29 PM »
Whats up with his cough?  Is this explained anywhere?  I see no need for this to be even in the movie unless there is some significance ???

In the Clone Wars Volume 2, Mace Windu hurts Greivous chest area.

I don't care for him at all, I think it was stupid to create this extra character when Dooku could have filled the same role.  The coughing thing is annoying as well

Is there an audio sample someplace (like a preview, trailer, tv ad) of his cough in the movie? 

I don't think I've actually heard his movie voice yet, just the cartoon network version.  If there is a grevious audio clip, I think missed that one...  :-\

I have the Ep. III video game (awesome btw) and it's has various actual movie clips that I have never seen before.  One of them, shows Grevious entering the bridge on the Invisible Hand, coughing pretty good, just before getting a sit rep by a battle droid.

It is an odd sight seeing GG coughing that's for sure.

Yeah, DSM and Jim probably saw it the same place I did, the EpIII Video Game.  It sucks, IMO

Yeah, I dont care for it.  It just does not fit IMO.  Plus how many people who see the movie actually saw the CW Cartoon?  Alot of people will be scratching there heads saying what the flock.

He was created to be the walking, talking action figure of the movie. See Darth Maul and Jango Fett.

And I've never heard about his cough before. I guess I'll wait and see the film, but it sounds kinda stupid. Wouldn't he fix/repair himself to where he didn't cough?

He had no chance. He kidnapped Palpatine, and then Anakin and Obi flew off to battle for the opening crawl of ROTS!

But after that, he escapes to Utapau... he could have gotten repaired there, as he most likely has a few days before Kenobi finds him.

I know nothing of this cough yet (avoiding spoilers for the most part), but it definitely sounds kinda lame.

I don't care for him at all, I think it was stupid to create this extra character when Dooku could have filled the same role.  The coughing thing is annoying as well

I've hated the Grievous character since it's inception really, but after seeing some of his footage at C3, I have to admit that he's looking a lot cooler now, and I'm actually a little excited to see him in action.

But one spoiler I recently ran across somewhere said that there were FIVE lightsaber battles in ROTS.  I already know of most of them:

Anakin & Obi-Wan vs. Dooku
Mace and Jedi vs. Palpy
Yoda vs. Sidious
Anakin vs. Obi-Wan
and presumably Obi-Wan vs. Grievous (I know they fight, at least)

But what bums me out a bit (especially after watching the CW series) is that Grievous apparently takes no part in the killing of any of the other Jedi in ROTS?  I always figured he must play a large roll in the Jedi massacre, but it's looking more like that's just Anakin and the Clones.

Of course, like I said, I've been avoiding most spoilers, so I could be way off here...

There was (and is) still a clip of Grievous on the OS (that you don't have to pay for, imagine that!) where he's talking to Obi-Wan about something or other.  It sounds pretty silly.  I have no idea where the link is, but it was posted at around the time of C3.

According to the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Grievous's cough is a precursor to Vader.  Half-man, half-machine (even though Grievous certainly doesn't appear to be human), the trouble breathing, the mechanical legs and arms, the sinister mask, it all adds up.  Rob Coleman is quoted as saying, "He's like the Alpha version of Vader."
